This pit bull named Blue King was abandoned by his family at the Carson Shelter in California. The dog cried in his kennel when he felt the absence of his favorite people; he wouldn’t eat and kept crying and looking through the bars of the door. In one of the photographs, you can see a tear falling from one of his eyes.
Blue’s former family had to move and for this reason they decided to donate him to the shelter. He had a very good chance of being euthanized, but thanks to the Saving Carson Shelter Dogs organization, Blue got a new forever home.
After volunteers posted a video of him on their facebook page, a woman named Jennifer McKay saw him and so went to visit him.
This dog cries when he sees his family abandon him
Jennifer told The Dodo:
He seemed very sad and depressed. He wouldn’t even look at me, all the other dogs would look me in the eye and wag their tails, but he wouldn’t get up, he wouldn’t come to see me.
The woman thought the dog might be waiting for his old family to come back for him.
You could tell that every time someone passed it was like they were looking for them. It was like they knew they left them there.
Jennifer wanted to adopt him immediately, but the shelter needed to test his temper first, so she had to wait a little longer. She came back a second time and brought him a bone and a new bed.
I got some of his attention. He wouldn’t let me pet him or anything, but he liked his bed.
By the woman’s third visit, Blue was finally a bit more cheerful and caring.
He came straight to me!
It took the shelter a week to pass his temperament test and the woman was finally able to bring him home.
Jennifer said with a laugh:
He cheated on me. I expected to have a really laid back dog, but as soon as the doors opened in the kennel, he was super excited. And he loved riding in the car. He wanted to stick his head out the window .
The woman gave him a bath, took him for a walk, then fell asleep on the couch.
He looks like he’s at home. He belongs on the couch.
The dog likes to sleep, be pampered and have his belly stroked, and he also likes to look at himself in the mirror.
He is obsessed with looking in the mirror. We have a chest of drawers that’s about his height, and he’s sitting there smiling to himself and wagging his tail.
This beautiful animal will never be sad again, because he now has a family who loves him and will never leave him.
He just looks like he’s happy. I came home from work yesterday and he ran right up to me. He’s just a good dog. I’m so excited to have him part of the family.
